A METÀ TRA GIALLO CLASSICO E HORROR, L’IMPRESA CHE HA CONSACRATO SHERLOCK HOLMES COME L’INVESTIGATORE PER ECCELLENZA
«L’alone soprannaturale che ammanta il caso è un’esca troppo appetitosa per la straordinaria capacità di osservazione e di deduzione di Sherlock Holmes, che come sempre coinvolge nelle sue indagini anche il fido dottor Watson, formidabile spalla per le sue battute e il suo ingegno. […] Dopo aver letto Sherlock Holmes, quel suo vizio di studiare le persone diventa contagioso. Ancora oggi, tutte le volte che leggo un libro di Conan Doyle sull’autobus, gli inconsapevoli passeggeri diventano materia per le mie esercitazioni. Come Sherlock, mi piace provare a ricostruire fitte storie a partire da semplici dettagli. Chissà se indovino».
